I wasn't the one who broke her but I played my part.
She came to us when she was ten. I raised her. I loved her. I taught her how to survive in a world of evil men. But it wasn't enough.
I wasn't the one who saved her but I did my best.
She needed me as much as I needed her. Bought and paid for on the auction block. But not for the reasons you think. She was my weapon.
I wasn't the one who lied to her but I hid her truth. She was broken before I got there. Wild and angry. Defiant and bratty. But she trusted me most. She loved me best.
So I set her free.
Indie Anna Accorsi is a woman lost in her past.
A pretty little nightmare.
A gorgeous piece of misery.
A mess of lovely darkness.
She is creeping beautiful.
And now we want her back.
One of the Best Books I’ve Read in Years!
Creeping Beautiful is not the kind of book you simply read. You experience it. You live it. This story and these characters will burrow under your skin and embed themselves in your soul… and you will welcome it. This is a book that stays with you long after you’ve finished reading it. It’s intense and engaging and thoughtful and absolutely riveting. It is heartbreaking and hopeful all at once. It will you leave you emotionally wrung out and reeling, and so happy for the experience. You don’t need to have read any of JA Huss’s previous books to become thoroughly immersed in this one. Although you may find yourself drawn to her previous books after you’ve read this one, and that can only mean good things for you. I, myself, am a long-time reader and admirer of JA Huss’s work, so you’d think I’d be used to the dark and twisty by now… but there is no preparing for Creeping Beautiful. What I wouldn’t give to live in JA Huss’s mind for just one day! Although, I’m not at all sure my psyche is prepared for such an experience. Machiavelli has nothing on you, Ms. Huss. Lucky for us, you choose to use your powers for good, which translates to hours of enjoyment for your readers. I honestly cannot recommend this book highly enough, and I will be counting the days for the next book in this masterful and compelling series.
* I was given an ARC of this book and voluntarily chose to review. All of my opinions are honest and entirely my own.
Totally captivating! Loved it!
I was so excited when I heard about Creeping Beautiful by JA Huss and let me tell you I was not disappointed. It was unexpected, full of twists, turns and surprises. Told in multiple points of views, we learn about McKay, Adam, Donovan, Indie and Nathan. JA Huss takes us back to the company world in this standalone story and without giving too much away, it was emotional, captivating and full of suspense. I was riveted to the story and the characters from the start. We are given flashbacks as we learn about each character and try to figure out what is going on in the present and how the past has affected all of them. I devoured this book and am excited to see what comes next!
A Brilliant, Mind-Bending Romantic Suspense!
Bravo, my mind is well and truly blown! A Brilliant, Mind-Bending Romantic Suspense! This is one twisted...roller coaster of a book. There are intersecting characters that show up in this spin-off of the company series among a few other characters but this is a completely new series and you DO NOT need to read any of the prior books to understand what is happening. Core McCay raised and trained her, Adam Boucher bought her yet calmed her and Donavan Couture was her protector yet could he be trusted? All of them had a part of molding Indie Anna Accors into the weapon she is today. A company player, an asset...an assassin but, behind it all she was still just a girl and they all loved her. Indie shows up at McKay’s after being gone for four years needing his help to find someone. He agrees but isn’t sure what’s truly going on or what memories helping her might unleash. “You’re not like other people. None of us are. We don’t fit in anywhere but in the world of the company.” This goes back and forth between a 14 year time period to give you the full story of all these characters and how they found their way into each others lives. Each gives a part of themselves to Indie that bonds them all together. Once you’re in “the company” you never really can leave...can you? My mind is blown with all the twists and information passing through this brilliant book. I really cannot say too much but get ready and enjoy! There are so many revelations unveiled with each turn of the page. I could not put this down! This does end leading into the next book. Told in multiple POV
